by John Stoke with illustrations by Sophie Holme

Mary loves to visit her Granny and Pa who live in an old house in the Lake District with their little tortoiseshell cat called Flora (because the fur on the side of her head is in the shape of a flower). Here, in the first in a series of stories, Mary wonders whether any of her animal friends will say hello to her – but only one of them agrees and becomes Mary’s ‘favourite animal in all the world’.

The Bad Tempered Dragon

The Bad Tempered Dragon by Jennifer Clark

Do dragons exist? … well Jack knows, because he saw a real one stuck in a hedge on his way to school! From then on the day became an unbelievably strange adventure for all involved.

George the dragon is very grumpy, he’s not having a good day – he’s lost his mum and is now stuck with this small human who has taken him to school – that’s when the troubles really begin.

George is usually invisible to all humans except his new ally and he changes colour when he gets grumpy … which is a lot!

This story book teaches children about morality and emotional intelligence, through the use of narrative and colour showing how colours affect our behaviour. A great resource for facilitating group discussion.
